Greatest Surprise Awaits

Revelation 10:1   (KJV)   10 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire

Revelation 10.1 - Greatest Suprise AwaitsAn angel clothed with a cloud, rainbow over the head, face shining like the sun, feet like pillars of fire—this is definitely a different picture compared to the images of angels commonly portrayed.

We need to be ready to be pleasantly surprised by still so many things that will be revealed to us when our eyes are finally and completely opened to the supernatural world. We’ve seen angelic beings painted or drawn as babies, toddlers, warriors, some have two wings, some have six. But there have not been a lot of times when we’ve seen depictions of angels as majestic as the one we see here.

That’s an angel. When it comes to God, we’re already out of words to describe our infinite, eternal, omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, immutable, loving, holy, just God. As free as our imaginations are, they still fall short of grasping the glorious reality of our God and of the supernatural and eternal sphere. We’re already absolutely fascinated by the surface truths we know.  Oh, what an indescribable and unimaginable delight it will be when we see Him face to face.

One Thing

Luke 10:42   (KJV)   42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

In the final analysis, there’s only One that really matters: Jesus. Although there are those who get bogged down with a lot of small details, what’s important is our Lord: things in and about Him. It’s a joy to know that we make the right choice, and the Lord values our luke-10-42-one-thingchoice of Him; He protects that; He vindicates us as we stand for Him: for what is good, right, and godly; when we choose Him over anything and anyone; when we choose the eternal over the temporal.

We believe in the existence and reality of God; we believe in the reality of the invisible spiritual dimension. Others only believe what connects with their senses: what they can see, hear, smell, touch and taste. Our prayer is that they’ll have a saving belief of and experience with the Lord so that they could share in the wonders of life eternal and the unlimited realm. The supernatural exists; our Lord Jesus: His coming, His teaching, His resurrection, His ascension proves that.

We make the main thing the main thing. We know who we are; we know our purpose; we know our destiny. We are God’s children; we keep pursuing a growing and more intimate relationship with the Father. There’s a great harvest; we are lambs sent among wolves, but we go loving on the wolves nonetheless. We don’t fear because God has given us power, love and wisdom; we know how to navigate through the rough “seas” of this earth. We press on towards the mark of the high “heavenward” calling of God in Christ Jesus. It’s really that simple. So we seek Him and His righteousness, and all the small details of life that often distract others from what really matters in this life and eternity are taken care of personally by our precious Lord Jesus.
